Mrs. Gladys thomason, Cor. Too close for comfort Here's a photograph token from a lccty«k. You don't bring a ship this close to an icebergl For underwater the tentacles of this cruel, cold monster may reach out a mile or more. Life for some folks is a succession of narrow escapes. But these ere adventures we can do without. They don't prove us bold sailors. They simply prove us poor navigators. Frightened men sometimes turn to religion as a refuge when dangers-moral, spiritual and physical—loom too close for comfort* God does not fail us in crisis. But the every-day function of faith is to pilot men on a true course through the sea of life. The Church cannot sweep away icebergs. It warns us of their whereabouts and helps us give them a wide berth. Copyright 3559 Krirter Advertising Service, Inc., StraAwrg, Va.
